Neon Summer

Firstly we are super sorry if you are looking at this stuck in work but rainbow neon for me really highlights how incredible summer really is. Its weird but I feel as though it ignites this exciting feeling. If you are heading anywhere hot and summery soon or just what to have that feeling put some neon or rainbow tie dye into your wardrobe. Check out these pictures of a neon summer.

If you fancy putting some colour into your wardrobe this summer, don't forget our rainbow and neon tie dye items. They also make your tan look even browner!

Layering Accessories with Versace 2014 RTW

Versaces Spring 2014 RTW collection definitely has to be one of my favourites. Body chains have become a massive fashion accessory of late and this collection definitely shows how to wear them. I love the rock chick vibe of this collection and with the mix of metal chains and studs it really sets off this look. The tour t-shirts look incredible with a splash of glamour with the sequin sleeves and upper top sections, even Donatella herself is rocking one. If your not keen on layering the fabrics your wearing how about getting this look by layering body chains and chokers on simple tops, we've featured some body chains and chokers from brands Regal Rose and Lunar Made for you to have a look at!

Description taken from style.com:

"Drake's big up to Donatella closed the Versace show tonight, but it was Nine Inch Nails who soundtracked the rest of the presentation, and it was the sullen mean girls of hard rock, not hip-hop, who shaped the collection. Maybe that's why the whole thing worked so well. The Reznor situation was close to Donatella's heart. Beforehand, she was as excited as we've ever seen her as she waved around the Versace World Tour 2014 T-shirts that were standouts in the show (she wore one for her walkout). The gigs listed on the back of the tee ran the usual gamut—New York, London, Paris, etc.—but Jupiter and Venus were also named. Interplanetary Donatella? That sounds like a lost masterpiece from space-rock gods Hawkwind.

The metal details came hard and heavy in the collection: studs on denim, mesh bandannas, chains round necks or harnessing torsos, hook-and-eye closings. Definitive: Lindsey Wixson in a shag cut, sheer blouse, black bandeau, denim pencil skirt hook-and-eyed down the front like it was stapled shut, and towering platform sandals bound to her feet with elastic bands. But if the clothes looked tough, they had a surprising softness (there was a lot of linen in the denim), or at least a richness. The hard, hip-slung, sheeny circle skirts that opened the show were actually raffia.

To be perfectly frank, those opening looks—the collection's manifesto, if you like—threw major shade on the more traditional wrapped and revealing evening looks that closed the show. That might be the Versace that Donatella imagines people expect from her. But how much better it is when she lets her rock 'n' roll heart run free."

Chokers by Lunar made can give you this layering effect and even adding the pastel colours of the Versace collection into your outfit. Check out these velvet chokers for only £7-8!

If you fancy going for the more chain effect like in some of these Versace outfits check out some of Regal Roses body chains and chain chokers! Some of the body chains are now in the sale for only £10! Snap them up while you can!

How about trying to recreate the look with layering up a cut out swimwear too? Layer with a skater skirt to make it look like a body underneath. Both swimwear from Miss Guided for only £20!
